Skippy's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Skippy's Story...
Skippy is a very friendly, energetic 1+1/2 yr old boy. He is red fawn in color. He enjoys playing with other Iggys and people. He walks well on a leash, goes to his kennel when asked, and knows the sit command. Skippy especially likes to seek attention from people by jumping on them. Skippy is working on his potty habits, but has been doing well thus far. Skippy was just neutered and given shots in early August and is ready to find his new home now. He was turned in to rescue becuase his owner had a change of living situation and couldn't keep him any longer. She couldn't find a home that had basic knowledge of IGs so she decided that it would be best to let rescue help. If you are new to this breed please email and let us give you some information. They are very cute as puppies, but are very needy of attention. Skippy is being fostered in Omaha, NE. Local adoptions are preferred. UPDATE: Skippy slipped outside on a wet surface after it rained and has broken his leg and will need many weeks of rest before he will be ready to be adopted now. This demonstrates how easily their legs can break, and it is not cheap to fix. If you would like to contribute to help fix Skippy's leg, please email or make a donation on our home page. UPDATE: Skippy's leg healed incorrect so he has had a second surgery to correct this. Now he has a plate in his leg, and it is straight again. He is undergoing physical therapy to get the full motion back and will be ready to be adopted by August or Sept 2007.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skippy, a Lincoln Italian Greyhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Italian Greyhound for sale in Lincoln, or seeking a Italian Greyhound dog from a breeder in Lincoln.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lincoln already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lincoln breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Italian Greyhound breeders who help with Italian Greyhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lincoln paves the way for another one to be saved.
